Introducing the Ultimate Fix for Post-Workout Soreness4 min read
It’s a tale as old as time: You got ahead of yourself during a recent workout class, and once the endorphins wore off, your arms, legs,and entire body for that matter are so unbelievably sore.
Sure, taking an ice bath is an option, albeit an extreme one, but it’s not exactly practical for the tiny studio apartment (and even tinier bathroom) we call home.
Enter VitalFit’s Tart Cherry capsules — a naturally-derived way to reduce soreness, stiffness, and any other ache that happens to be ailing you. To create the formula, the brand harnessed the powers of tart cherries, which are jam-packed with anti-inflammatory enzymes to help reduce oxidative stress, soreness, inflammation, and free radicals.
In fact, the enzymes (COX-1 and COX-2, to be precise) are the exact same ones you’d find in over-the-counter pain relievers, but thanks to their natural origin, you can trust that they’re entirely safe and won’t irritate sensitive stomachs.
To bypass any sugar, the tart cherry skins are isolated and incorporated into the formula, which boast the nutritional equivalent of 212 cherries per capsule. The potent amount means your body absorbs all the benefits much quicker, but don’t just take our word for it.
The brand ran a clinical trial with 27 endurance athletes, who took one capsule a day for ten days prior to a half-marathon. The athletes who participated experienced 47% less inflammation, 34% less perceived soreness, and faster run times by 13%
Even better, the remedy isn’t exclusive to post-workout pains — they also work wonders after a long flight, or after falling asleep on the couch after a Netflix binge session and waking up with a crick in your neck. One to two capsules are all you need to help soothe sore muscles.
Add a bottle to your queue now and kick stiff, achy muscles to the curb for good.
